NBC’s Kristen Welker dodges two falling lights and continues with her report – The Sun

NBC News reporter Kristen Welker managed to dodge two huge falling light fixtures in Washington D.C. — and despite the distraction, kept on reporting during a live shot.

Welker, a 43-year-old who works as a White House correspondent for the network, could’ve been hurt on Wednesday as she was reporting from outside the White House.

While wearing a mask, Welker was talking about stay-at-home orders across the U.S. and President Donald Trump’s tweets about “liberating” states when the wind started to pick up.

“So it is quite remarkable, if not exactly clear,” Welker begins — before a light fixture placed on her right falls down in front of her.

After Welker backed up a bit, a second light fixture fell in front of her from her left side.

“It’s a little windy out here, Andrea,” she said as she spoke on the program Andrea Mitchell Reports.

But despite the interruption, Welker was determined to keep reporting.

Moments later, the anchor could be heard saying “oh my God.”

“Kristen, please,” Mitchell chimes in, asking Welker if she was alright and to “take a breath.”

“It's OK. We’re OK, they fell in front of me,” Welker says reassuringly.


Welker didn’t seem to be fazed by the wild incident, and even tweeted afterward: “Put me in, coach!”

Twitter users were mesmerized by Welker's ability to keep reporting when she could've been hurt by the falling lights.


"Kristen Welker almost got taken out *twice* in this segment! But she kept going like a damn boss," one person tweeted.

Another said: "Kristen Welker is a pro. She kept going with her standup as light stands fell in front of her. Goals."

One person said Welker wins the award for "reporter most on the [their] toes."
